Heir, Hotelier, Philanthropist. He was the youngest son of Conrad Hilton, founder of the famous Hilton Hotel empire. He started working at the company in 1949, working his way up to vice chairman emeritus when he retired in 1997. He carried on his father's philanthropic legacy as director of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, serving on the jury that awarded the annual $1.5 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, and was chairman of the board of the BEST Foundation for a Drug-Free Tomorrow. He also served as a director of the Little League Foundation of America for almost 45 years. In 2007, when hearing that Las Vegas was closing its only food distribution program due to lack of funds, he founded Three Square Food Bank, a program that serves hundreds of thousands of meals annually and has quickly become a national model for hunger relief.
